Sorry for the long absence, I have been busy with work and traveling so I haven’t had much time to post anything but I do have a few updates for you. I currently have my first Ryan Reilly original IPA fermenting and will be racking it to the secondary for some dry hopping on Sunday. It is going to have a blend of 5 different hops (Centennial, Sorachi Ace, Nelson, Simcoe, and Cascade). Hopes are high for this one.
Project Pure Awesomeness a.k.a. The Kegerator is moving along nicely. Bill and I finished sanding, drilling the holes for the taps, and staining the collar. I’m really happy with how the stain came out. I went with a dark brown which I like to call sexual chocolate. This weekend we are going to epoxy the collar to the freezer and once that has had a few days to dry and seal, it will be ready for the plumbing. After that, it will be fully operational. Stay tuned for more updates this weekend.
If you’d like to tackle this project yourself, the guys at Northern Brewer (#northernbrewer) have a wonderful guide that I’m following or you can check out this link. (How to Build a Keezer)
